Event Description

Elder Street Gallery calls for entries for a postcard art show to be held during the month of October, 2009. All work will be exhibited. No jury and no returns.

Create the postcard on an existing 4"x6" post card or a 5” X 9” post card or start from scratch on a blank 4" x 6" or 5” X 9” piece of card stock. The art does not have to be done on an "official" post card, just something of similar weight and size. Please include on the back of your postcard - Your name, full mailing address, title of artwork, medium and email address, (website if you have one) .The artwork on the postcard can be either horizontal or vertical. All artwork can be mailed as a postcard or sent inside an envelope.

Materials will vary, depending on the technique you choose. You may create the art with any technique, and all media are acceptable, including collage, markers, crayons, pen and ink, colored pencils, rubber stamps, tempera, acrylic, watercolor and printmaking. The only consideration is that the artwork cannot have a raised surface. Please no nudity, racist, or pornographic art.

All work will be on display at Elder Street Gallery, in October. A reception will be held on Saturday, October 16, 5:00 to 10:00. This reception is free and open to the public.

Mail postcards to Elder Street Gallery, 1101 Elder Street, Suite 109, Houston, Tx 77007.
Postcards must be postmarked by Oct 3, 2009. Questions and/or a copy of prospectus call Terrence at 281-250-4889 or e-mail elderstreetgallery@gmail.com

Postcards become property of Elder Street Gallery and will be for sale, with the proceeds benefiting the English Speaking Union Houston Branch - Shakespeare Competition.
The English Speaking Union Houston Branch is a non profit organization dedicated to international relations between the UK and the other countries of the world and the celebration of all things British.

Asking a fee for entering a show is something most mail-artists won't appreciate.
